Welcome to the UCLA Engineering Alumni Association (EAA)! The mission of the EAA is to create mutually beneficial lifelong relationships between the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and its alumni. All alumni of UCLA Engineering are lifetime members of the Engineering Alumni Association.


The graduate experience provided by MSOL is perfect for a working professional seeking higher education. The coursework is relevant, engaging, and challenging. The ability to build your program of study guarantees that you will graduate the program well-prepared for the future. The program office is abundantly helpful–I recommend that you take advantage of the guidance they provide!

MSOL is perfectly tailored for working individuals. You can obtain high quality education while pursuing your career and receive full support from the program’s personnel and faculty. The advisor and faculty genuinely care about your success in completing the program. The classes are challenging but manageable, and their completion is highly satisfactory. I definitely recommend the MSOL program offered by the number one public university in the nation, UCLA.

UCLA’s MSOL program in Engineering Management is a specifically designed and targeted program that teaches an individual how to succeed in the workplace by enhancing their skills in big picture analysis and design making. The professors apply theoretical concepts to common real-life situations that are directly translatable to many industries. In addition to the very accommodating teaching staff that were always available (even outside their normal appointed times) the MSOL program provides many outlets aimed to help you connect to other professionals and make the most of the program. I had attended several other programs at other universities before attending UCLA and the transition to UCLA was the best decision I made.

The program has exceeded my expectations in many ways. My experiences at MSOL were even better than my undergraduate studies, also at UCLA. Both professors and TAs were very accessible, with most of them holding their video-conference office hours dedicated to the MSOL students in the evening or weekends several times a week. I have never learned more effectively than in the MSOL classes, thanks to the flexible lectures that allowed me to watch and re-watch them based on my schedule (and also to the challenging yet fair homework assignments). I was able to meet friends, form study groups, and complete group projects in many classes. As a patent attorney, I have been blown away by how relevant the knowledge I learned from the MSOL program is in relationship with some of the most cutting edge technologies and patents in Silicon Valley.

The MSOL program was a great choice for me to access high quality education at UCLA while working full time. Balancing between work and school is a challenging, yet rewarding experience. I learned a lot of interesting science and technologies and learned to be more a disciplined and focused person. Most TAs and professors are very accessible and responsive to online students, which makes me feel supported even though I’m far away from campus. I also really appreciate the flexibility on class selection. For a person that did not taking electrical engineering as an undergraduate, I was able to explore multiple subjects and find out what I like. With the help from a few data science and CS classes from the MSOL program, I was able to transition to a data scientist at work, which I find a lot more exciting.
